ISO/IEC 17025 Foundation Course
Quality systems standards such as ISO 9001 require the use of calibration and test facilities that demonstrate their ability to meet quality requirements. In addition, QS-9000 and ISO/TS16949 specify the use of ISO/IEC 17025 accredited facilities.
The purpose of this two day course is to provide attendees with an understanding of the laboratory accreditation process in the context of other standards (eg. QS-9000, ISO/TS 16949 and ISO 9001 Quality Management System Standards). The course will provided detailed guidance on the requirements of ISO/IEC 17025, the structuring of Quality System Documentation, implementation steps and Laboratory Accreditation requirements.
